When An Accident Has A Huge Impact
Accidents can happen any time, even if you are just walking and minding your own business. Thousands of pedestrians die every year in motor vehicle-related accidents, and many nonvehicular pedestrian accidents happen as well. Poor property maintenance and construction are often the cause of these accidents.
No matter the cause of your accident, there are a few things you can do to protect your right to compensation. Other parties like insurance companies might try to make you seem responsible for the accident, so it’s important to look out for yourself.
- Call the police immediately.
- Don’t leave the scene of the accident before police arrive.
- Do not under any circumstances make a statement to the other party or insurers.
Insurance adjusters may act like they’re your friends — but at the end of the day, their goal is to pay you as little money as possible. You need an experienced accident lawyer to be your advocate.
How An Accident Attorney Can Help
We know that being in an accident is among the most stressful things you will experience: Medical and household bills are piling up at a time when you should be able to focus on recovering. That’s why attorney Mark Rufo has dedicated his practice entirely to personal injury since 1979.
You deserve compensation for your injuries and the consequences they have had on your life. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to recover that compensation from the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident or the property manager whose negligence led to your injury.

How much is my case worth?Every case is unique, and how much compensation you are eligible to receive depends on what evidence we can gather — so we can’t guarantee a certain amount. We can guarantee, however, that we will fight for every last penny you are entitled to for your medical treatment, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Why can’t I just accept the insurance company’s offer?Insurance companies make their money cheating you. Claims agents are trained to get you to agree to the lowest possible amount, so the company can continue to maximize its profit. The only way to look out for your best interests and ensure that you receive fair compensation is to seek counsel from an attorney who is experienced in standing up to these insurance companies.
What if I can’t afford an attorney?Personal injury lawyers do not cost anything upfront. In fact, we get paid only when you do — and we receive only a percentage of the compensation we secure for you. This means that not only can you afford high-quality representation, but you know we will be fighting for the maximum possible recovery, because our own pay depends on it, too.
